A unique and distinctive natural coloured Tjanpi grass basket hand woven by Pitjantjatjara artist, Nita Williamson.

This naturally textured hand crafted basket is approximately 190mm in diameter and 8cm tall. The basket opening is 150mm, and crowned with a sweep of delicate emu feathers.

Tjanpi, meaning 'grass' in Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara, and Yankunytjatjara languages, forms the base of Tjanpi Weavers' sculptures and baskets. It is collected by artists across NPY lands, usually Minarri (Amphipogon sericeus), Grey-beard (Amphipogon sericeus), and Woollybutt (Eragrostis eriopoda).

Wipiya (Emu Feathers) are ethically and sustainably harvested from a farm in Queensland and cleaned and treated prior to use.

Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of the NPY Women's Council which supports women living in remote Central and Western desert communities to create contemporary fibre art through traditional and modern practice.
